The New York State Police arrested two Sullivan County men, Jack Carter, age 21, and Nick Carter, age 26, both of Glen Spey, on Wednesday, Jan. 19, for the murder of a missing area man.
The arrest stems from an investigation into a missing person report for 74-year-old Mark Eckert, of Glen Spey, who was last seen at his home on Saturday, Jan, 15, said New York State Police Trooper Steven Nevel.
An investigation ensued and on Jan. 19, Eckert's was located dead on his property, Nevel said.
Jack and Nick Carter were located and arrested in New Jersey and are awaiting extradition back to New York, Nevel said.

A reason for the murder has not been determined.
